Consistently being awarded as winners in various Guiding categories such as Western Cape Guide, Tourist Guiding Excellence and Best Tourist Guide of the Year, many of these passionate staff members hold university degrees in marketing, photography, tourism and education but have chosen to place their focus on realising the dreams of our guests.  You will be completely blown away by their knowledge, excitement and passion!  They speak English, German and Spanish, and our wider network of Tour Guides speak most other languages.

As one of our Tour Guides said, ‘….tour guides are ambassadors of the country and have to ensure they put the country on the map. Guiding is no longer a hobby but a profession and guides have to be trained to do the job so that they render an excellent service for tourists…’.

Below are just a small sample of excerpts from some of our most recent guest compliments.  They really do speak for themselves!!
